Hodo Soy became famous when Chipotle chose them to make their special recipe Sofritas option. Hodo Soy has an incredible line of ready-to-eat products they sell in retail.
One of my favorites is the Hodo Sesame Yuba Noodles which is organic and gluten-free.
What exactly is Yuba you ask?
From Hodo Soy’s website, here is more details on how Hodo makes Yuba, and here in a nutshell is what Yuba is.
“Yuba is a delicacy. Fresh Yuba, or in Japanese, Nama Yuba, is a category of fresh “tofu skin” harvested from rich and creamy soymilk. Hodo is the only maker of fresh, organic, non-GMO, fresh yuba in the US marketplace.
A delicacy made from only soybeans and water, yuba is the thin veil that forms on the surface of soymilk as the cream and protein rise to the surface.”
You can see in the photo of my Ginger Sesame dish above the strips of Yuba among the brown rice noodles. I like the texture of the Yuba noodles which feel like flattened firm tofu with a little spring to it. The Yuba takes on the flavor you add to it.
The Yuba strips are basically a new way to experience eating tofu and it’s fun!
